Will Smith: Reconsidering “Independence Day” Sequel?

Posted Thursday September 5, 2013 2:20 PM GMT

He’s the king of summer blockbusters and Will Smith got his start in the genre with his role in “Independence Day” back in 1996.

And though he initially passed on doing a sequel, the “Fresh Prince of Bel Air” hunk sounds like he’s had a change of heart.

Director Roland Emmerich told press that while nothing is set in stone, he’s hopeful about Smith’s involvement with the new project and even has a meeting set up to talk about it.

"I sometimes say no, Will Smith will not be in it because he didn't want to do it at first. Now we have a meeting planned, we want to talk about it again. Anything can happen,” he gushed.
